Before your next outdoor adventure, pack a pair of women's sandals that are as tough as you are. Our outdoor sandals are designed for various outdoor activities, offering a balance between protection, support, and comfort while allowing for greater breathability and mobility than traditional shoes or boots.
What Are Outdoor Sandals Good For
- Hiking: Many outdoor and sport sandals are equipped with sturdy soles and traction, making them suitable for hiking in moderate terrains. They are particularly popular for warm-weather hiking as they provide ventilation and comfort.
- Water Activities: Some sandals are excellent for water-related activities like kayaking, rafting, and beachcombing. They dry quickly and often have water-draining features. Look for our Skeena sandals for use near and in water.
- Walking and Everyday: Of course our sandals are not limited to mountain and trail activities. They also look great in everyday settings including on walks around the neighborhood, at the local park, and at summer outdoor gatherings.
Why Wear Sandals vs. Shoes for Outdoor Activities
Breathability is the biggest reason. Sandals provide excellent ventilation, keeping your feet cooler in hot weather. This can reduce the risk of overheating and discomfort during outdoor activities. Sandals also offer more natural foot movement and flexibility, which is beneficial for activities that require agility, like rock scrambling or crossing streams.
Some sandals have a quick drying feature. When exposed to water, these sandals can dry much faster than traditional shoes, making them suitable for water sports and activities that involve river crossings.
Finally, there's comfort. The open design of sandals can be more comfortable in warm weather, as they prevent moisture buildup and reduce the risk of blisters. Sandals also tend to be lighter weight than hiking boots or sneakers, allowing you to stow them in a backpack without adding a ton of weight on your back.
